Barcelona stands on a plain that slopes down from the Sierra de Collserola to the sea. Barcelona is a fabulous city and rivals all others with its extraordinary architecture, history and passionate people. Today, Barcelona balances itself on the cutting edge of architecture, intellectual life, and style. Among the city's unique delights are its Picasso Museum, palm-lined avenues, Gaudí architecture, revamped beachfront, and powerful nightlife. The famous Port Olympic is the perfect place to start a yacht charter in Barcelona.
The Costa Brava used to be defined as the Catalan coast between Barcelona and France. The Costa Brava is the best-known part of Spain's coastline. Because, although it has suffered from development, it still has unspoilt corners, sheltered coves, some of the most attractive scenery in the Mediterranean for a sailing vacation.
